in the eastern district of virginia and convicted of those sentences, i suspect he could easily be doing 20 or life. it would have been completely different. when you look at the outcome, i have many defendants you are serving life sentences. >> the note terrorism defendant in the united states ever got the death sentence either. when a promises one, he is gone against the tide. >> let me ask you about what you think about the claim of them. they say there is no ultimate due process. on the other hand, they are not been applied for the hoehling. we are talking about this proposal. and do not believe that under no circumstances would the defendant be released. i suppose the will be a question for courts. we may never have to address the issue. i am wondering what you think about the impact on a trial of that position. >> what i was asking about -- i did not mean inherently. i was talking about that kind of background and assumption. >> i took it as that. i do not know the answer to your question. it undercuts it from the international perspective. it appears to be a show trial. what happens

found out is if there is interfaith multi- cultural peace movements not just in northern virginia and washington, d.c., but they are in israel, palestine, jerusalem, no mention of these organizations, why do think that is so? i am jewish but i'm not a billionaire. if you look at the press, all jewish people are all rich. this stereotype goes on with african-americans and lots of different minorities. how do we change these images so that america changes as the images change? >> two points on that. i wanted to speak to two issues. first, the nature of the media is the only cover conflict. moderation and bridge building is not newsworthy. it does not make the news when we get 10,000 people live in chicago at our annual convention. we bring government and all sorts of civic leaders and we talk about how we, as americans, from all different faith backgrounds are working together for justice, are working together against a the kind of extremism. we're working together for peace and security for people in the middle east. it just does not make news. unless there is a conflict, and if yo

us saying the democrats from parkersburg, west virginia. caller: good morning. i was inspired by president obama's speech yesterday. we were certainly on a downward spiral and after he took over we continued downward. now i think things are showing in little but a promise. we are on the way back up. on that recovery, is it going to be a recovery for the american people or will it be a recovery for the corporations that do business both domestically and internationally? it has got to be for the people to rebuild the middle class. that is where the tax base comes from. host: the president talked about the middle-class system. his speech is available on our website, c-span.org. a derrick from washington, d.c., you say either the third party or you don't know. caller: it is a third party. i am 47 years old and from my lifetime i was a democrat, i was a republican, i will cover -- brought me to my senses. in that neither party. america is in a unique paradigm. right now all of the stimulus packages that are being proposed -- the federal government is broke. this money is being prin

] [inaudible] thank you, much better. i am joined by my colleague bob goodlatte from virginia. i will be joined by our colleagues who are also assisted by a very able counsel. at the outset the house recognizes what an extraordinary proceeding this is and how seldom an impeachment is undertaken. this is a reflection of several things, that the men and women nominated for the federal bench. they have not given cause for their removal from office. emoval from office. i think it's also a tribute to the confirmation process that does a good job in vetting out those who are not suitable for the bench. and i also think it's a reflection of how infrequently the house believes this extraordinary remedy is required. i won't spend much time this morning in discussing the standard for impeachment, the content of high crimes and misdemeanors. there'll be time for that later. more than that, i think the members of this committee understand that standard probably better than i or anyone else could articulate. but i will share at least in my view one of the formulations i think house and senate have arrived o

fundraising dinner. the former chairman of virginia's democratic party writes about her this morning in "the washington post," says sarah palin saved the g.o.p. here how he concludes -- palin started as tonto, but became the lone ranger. she runs mains strong and stood by her party. she's become a bridge between the old republican guard and the growing right-wing dissatisfaction, not just about democrats, but also with republican office holders. palin's ability to advocate for using the g.o.p., not a third party to channel this angst has allowed republican voter anger to boil, yet not boil over. should republicans run up the score in november, sarah palin will deserve a lot of credit she will never get. guest: i don't know whether she'll get it, but i think that's a very accurate assessment. i think palin has been great. she's been a dynamo. she has advocated for conservative principles unapologetically. when they tried to beat her down, she bounces right back, and she's right back in her faces, and she set an example. and really, do you realize what it's like to have the entire media machin

in virginia were talking about murdering christians and jews. which were the specific moderate muslims who spoke out against that when the international commission on religious freedom reported that? >> thank you. >> i would like to answer the first question because it is very simple. our belief is that there is no muslim country now that is following sharia law. one good reason is because the very basics of the islamic society, including the head of state legitimately by the people is not taking place. i am not defending any muslim country. i hope in the united states that i can be a better muslim than i can in some of the other countries. you called it benign sharia law. what did we do to it to make it benign? i don't like that. our laws are anaheim tehran laws. the only issue is whether they are applied or not applied. and in fact there is no muslim country that aplays it. there are tons of muslim countries that claim they are applying it, and they are using it to oppress the people. they are trying to tell that they are there, and the laws are by define will, so to speak. we need to te
